Hot Property: George Hamilton buys on Wilshire and makes cookies part of the deal

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

It would seem that actor George Hamilton hungers for more than just a perpetual tan. Hamilton, who recently bought along the Wilshire Corridor, wrote into the purchase offer that the seller -- who runs a popular bakery -- had to keep him in cookies for a year. Now why didn’t I think of that?

Details about what Hamilton bought are sketchy. The strip of high-rise condos along Wilshire is hot right now, and units in the luxury building in which he purchased are listed for up to $5 million.

According to Coco Clayman-Cook, the owner of LA Condo Lifestyles -- which represented the sellers -- Hamilton spent about 90 minutes in the unit munching on a selection of seller Ginger Sherak’s famous TuTu Bakery cookies, including her ginger snaps. Her husband, William Sherak, is a producer and owner of Blue Star Entertainment.

Hamilton, represented by Jerry Jolton of Coldwell Banker Previews International, Beverly Hills, will be sent cookies for a year. How perfect for the star of “Love at First Bite” (1979).
